The Irish Heritage Trust partnered with Teagasc and the Irish Agricultural Museum to undertake conservation work and develop a new and exciting ‘3in1’ visitor experience at Johnstown Castle Estate, Museum & Gardens. The Castle at Johnstown is a gem of gothic revival architecture and opened in summer 2019 to the public for guided tours for the after restoration.  The castle is surrounded by spectacular ornamental grounds designed by Daniel Robertson and offer a range of beautiful sculptured walks, lake walks and a Victorian walled garden. The Irish Agricultural Museum is housed in the former estate’s farm buildings and displays one of the most comprehensive displays of farming and rural life in Ireland.
